October 2021 was an exciting month for UrbanBEATS’ research team with the International Conference on Urban Drainage 2021 Virtual Meeting. We had a total of four oral presentations on various ongoing research projects around the UrbanBEATS Planning-Support System and one oral presentation on the adaptation of the SSANTO Planning-Support System
The SSANTO Planning-Suppose System was developed as an answer to UrbanBEATS’ current inability to weigh spatial suitability of different locations for Blue Green Systems. It provides a standalone and integrated solution to identifying the most suitable locations for Blue Green Systems and provides a strong basis for better strategic planning of such systems in urban environments. We have updated the website with some details on SSANTO.
